Danish technology company DSE has landed a strategically important order from a leading Finnish mobile technology manufacturer, possibly Nokia, writes Danish professional journal Ingeniøren (The Engineer). DSE is not permitted to disclose the name of the customer, but says it is a larger electronics manufacturer in mobile technology, whose production locations include Hungary. Nokia opened its first factory in Hungary 12 years ago.
DSE head of sales Jørgen Kjærsgaard comments: "We have primarily been chosen because they believe in our competences in testing, and because we have a geographical closeness, which means we can carry out service and support on the equipment."
The order comprises supply of a complete functional test system, which involves handling components and testing, as well as development of the test software needed to ensure that the equipment functions.
"The mobile industry sets demanding requirements as to how long a test takes, and we need to be able to keep pace when a new item comes off the production line every tenth of a second," says Kjærsgaard.
The new order has strategic importance to DSE. "In market terms, it is important because it is the first large order we have gained from Finland, and in technical terms it is important because it is in the mobile industry, which has demanding requirements for quality and reproducibility," says Kjærsgaard.
DSE is based in Horsens, Jutland, and employs 60 people. The company supplies airport solutions, test solutions, wire products and moisture testers.
